Winemaker's Notes

2005 follows the great 2004 debut with a worthy and more elegant successor. Severe drought lowered yields in this challenging vintage, while temperatures remained on the cool side, enhancing aromatic fruit intensity. Deep wild berry aromas and mouth filling flavor and length as only possible from the old vines. Tannins are evident but balanced by the succulent fresh fruit.

"The 2005 Vina Gormaz Tempranillo, produced from 50+-year-old ungrafted Tempranillo vines, is as good a value as exists from the D.O. of Ribera del Duero. This unoaked wine is dark ruby-colored with aromas of earth, spice, mineral, plum, and black currants. This is followed by a medium-bodied, ripe wine, with layered flavors, light tannin, and good balance. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Buy this one by the case! - 90 points" --- Jay Miller, Wine Advocate
